Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shining Resonance announced for PlayStation 3
« Last post by Aeolus on November 14, 2017, 10:28:27 AM »
You know, part of me would rather make a new topic rather than Necro an old one (from nearly 3 years ago, jfc), but this is a Shining game from Sega we're talking about, and a director's cut of a crappy one that we already had a thread for, so Necro it is.


Anyways, my reason for risking a warning is because of these.

While I doubt that this will fix the core issues with this game (150+ pieces of DLC, wtc), the real headliners are the fact that the series producer role has changed hands (fucking finally), and Sega's actually referring to The West as something other than a far off prefecture in Japan or an in-game location (nerds with money outside of Japan? lol, amirite?). At the absolute least, its something to look at.

Sounds like Sega is getting serious about Shining.....20 years too late!

Finished replaying Trails In The Sky on PC a few days back. Six years after playing it on PSP, I can finally play the sequel. And the third game. FINALLY.

You're in for a treat.

If the translation was this bad why didn't they just delay both versions instead of releasing the PS4 version early. I'm just thinking right now of saying alright you know i'm not going to wait until next year to play it i'm just going to start playing it I mean the translation isn't bad to the point where it's unplayable there's just alot of errors.
The translation isn't terrible.

And Yuzo Koshiro is a musical god. I actually bought the physical soundtrack for 5 several months ago along with the soundtracks to 4, Untold, and Untold 2.

Apparently I only THOUGHT a response to this instead of typing it, but I agree that the soundtracks can be the best part of any EO title.

Still likely to be better about it than Star Ocean 5 was or anything Level 5 ever put out at least.

The one thing you're not remembering here is that Level 5 made Dark Cloud 2/Dark Chronicle, which is one of the greatest video games ever made.

Valkyria Chronicles 3:  I'm partway into Chapter 11.  All hell is breaking loose, the squad has been betrayed on almost every level, and the main cast members are beginning to break under the stress.  I love this game.

Some of my characters have reached Elite rank in their main class, so I'm starting to switch their classes up so they can unlock more potentials.  It feels wrong to reassign Imca, though...she's unbelievably effective as a Lancer.  (Especially when you consider her special ability, which allows her to do massive damage to everything in line-of-sight).

No, it's not perfect.  The difficulty level is inconsistent; it seems I either get S-rank without breaking a sweat, or have to struggle just to survive (I hate those armored infantry guys).  But even with the rampant level reuse and PSP-graphics, this has the stuff I want in a VC game.

One of the only things I feel like I am missing is a ribbon, oddly.  Just haven't stumbled across a single one.

You can farm ribbons on floor 49 of the trial mode, and bring them back to the main game.  It's pretty time consuming, but you can ameliorate the poor drop rate by abusing the auto-save.

Holy crap, she did it!!  HOORAAAAYYY, Tomara!!!

Alright, now like Aeolus said, I'm out.

It really is the perfect time to cut and run as well since there's almost nothing going on at the moment (there's Sacred Seal Forge quests and yet another BHeB rerun, and whatever Chain Challenge/Squad Assaults players have backlogged; but that's it) and Gacha games do not do downtime very well.

I can definitely see why people hated the annoying and intrusive debt system, though.  I don't mind it, and I even like the construction of the game where you can kinda play lazily and explore at will.  I like the character sidestories, too.  But the constant phone calls from Nova are irritating, for sure.

To continue the main quest, please grind 500,000 (which you would probably have if we didn't put a forced money cap on you the entire time)
